Olivia Jade Giannulli accidentally compared her kitchen to a prison in her return to YouTube.

During the vlog-style video shared on Tuesday, the 24-year-old influencer gave viewers a glimpse inside her luxurious home and appeared to unintentionally poke fun at the college admissions scandal she and her famous parents, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, were at the center of five years ago.

“Back in the kitchen. Sorry for the mess that’s behind me — the kitchen needs a clean,” she says in the clip. “I’m so excited you guys, I finally ordered wallpaper for the kitchen so it’s not going to feel so sterile.”

“It’s not going to feel like… a prison,” she continues with a long pause. She adds with a slight smile, “Save the jokes. I don’t want to hear it. I set you up and I don’t want you to tee off. Okay?”

In 2019, Loughlin and Mossimmo were involved in a college admissions cheating scam in which they paid half a million dollars in bribes to falsely designate Olivia Jade and their older daughter, Isabella Rose, as recruits to the University of Southern California crew team. Both Mossimo and Loughlin served time in prison after pleading guilty to the crimes.

While appearing on an episode of Red Table Talk in Dec. 2020, Olivia Jade opened up about how she felt immediately after the scandal went public.

"To be honest, I wasn't angry," she said at the time. "And I think it's because I didn't have a good understanding of what just happened. I didn't see the wrong in it."

She added, "Like 100 percent honesty when it first happened I didn’t look at it and say, 'Oh my god, like, how dare we do this.' I was like, 'Why is everybody complaining? I'm confused what we did,' and that’s embarrassing to admit. That’s embarrassing within itself that I walked around my whole 20 years of life not realizing, 'You have insane privilege. You’re like the poster child of white privilege. And you had no idea.'"
